Are You A Best Performer In Your Industry?

I am sometimes asked: How do I become a leader in my business?

The kind of commitment I find among the best performers
across virtually every business segment is a single-minded passion for
what they do, an unwavering desire for excellence in the
way they think and the way they work. Genuine confidence
is what launches them out of bed in the morning, and through
their day with a spring in their step. Commitment is not just about a positive attitude or a smile for everyone, it's about being an expert in your field. Have you studied your competition compared to your product or service? How well do you know your product or service, your industry and most importantly your target market? Specifically, who exactly is your target market? What do they want? How do they use your service or product? Why do they use it? When will they use it and to what end?
Those who know the answers to these questions as they pertain to their business are or will be outstanding performers. This is the beginning of owning expertise in your business. If you know these answers you are developing a 'passion' for your business. To be truly passionate and an expert in your business segment you must be up to date on all that's going on in your segment and any closely related segments or products. It is also important to know what's happening locally, regionally, nationally and globally in your market segment and business in general. The good news is with easy access to the world wide web, all this information is available to all. But are you committed to updating yourself on your business on a regular basis? Do you do what's right for your customer and provide the best service or product you know how? Are you checking to be sure you are? Are you polling your customers for their feedback? Are you in touch with them from time to time even if they have not purchased in a while? Do you send them a newsletter about your business occasionally? Do you strive for excellence every day?
I hope I've given you some food for thought. Be an expert and be a leader.
I guarantee you'll be glad you are.

If you looked at my Blog at http://ping.fm/2dFMg let me know what subjects you'd like to see on it.

Marketing and Blogging

Many people I speak with each week want to know about blogging. What is it and how do I do it and why should I have a blog. There are many different ideas about blogging and here are my thoughts.
First, blogging is a way to exhibit your expertise to your audience. But who is your audience? Hopefully your audience is your friends, your current customers or clients and any prospects or potential prospects for your product or services. I believe to be an effective blogger you must have a passion for your business such that you know you have an ability or skill that you are very proficient in or a product that is very distinctive from your competitor's product. This provides the basis of your blog. Setting up a blog is easy. Just go to Blogger.com (or WordPress)and set up your profile just as you should have done on Facebook or LinkedIn or Twitter or Plaxo, etc. Then state the purpose of your blog and notify all your clients, friends and prospects, etc., that your have a blog and it's purpose. Invite them to 'subscribe to' or 'follow' your blog as your blog's purpose may be of interest to them.
I recommend your first blog should be about why you have a blog. So explain your blog purpose, your outlook on your business or business segment and what you want to accomplish in your business and why. Invite feedback from your audience in your blog as well. Ask them if there are subjects they'd like to know more about. For instance I put a poll on this blog and the majority voted that they think marketing is the most important subject that businesses need more info about. Then decide how often you want to add a new post to your Blog. Some bloggers post daily, some weekly or bi-weekly or bi-monthly or monthly. Whatever you decide, announce it to your audience and be sure to stick to it. If you don't your integrity and dependability suffers. So be careful what you commit to. Be sure you can follow through as promised. Each of your blog posts should be between 200-300 words on average. Don't write a novel. Lastly, be sure your spelling and grammar are good. I suggest you write it in MS Word then Spell and Grammar check it. Then just cut and paste to your posting tool.
My time is up for today. Next time I'll continue this discussion about Blogs.

"How To Avoid The E-Myth" .....check it out, be a subscriber

How Does Anyone Avoid The E-Myth?

First- what is the e-myth? E-Myth in the business vernacular refers to the Entrepreneurial Myth, and refers to the fact that most businesses fail because the founders are technicians that were inspired to start a business without knowledge of how successful businesses run. The mythic and often disastrous assumption is that people who are experts regarding technical details of a product or service will also be expert at running that sort of business. In some cases the business starts up ok but at some point a growth plateau is realized with no apparent reason.

What's happened? The business owner has become an employee of their own company and is working deep in their business. Doing $12-$20/hour tasks instead of delegating these to others and working on their business.
The solution can be stressful for the business owner as they have to learn to "let go" of activities they think no one else do or can trust to do properly. In my experience, the answer is a slow progression of business growth type tasks that the owner must commit to doing each day and leaving other smaller priority tasks to others. Hopefully, over time, the owner develops new daily activity habits that stick and the owner sees the positive impact of working on their business. Remember, we as business owners initially are the ultimate "do-it-yourselfers" which is why and how the business got started in the first place. We think we are all invincible and can do anything. Right? ........... Wrong! The sooner we learn that we can not do it all, the better off our company is and our business lives get better and miraculously even our personal lives become less stressful. Isn't that cool?

If the situation above sounds like you: Stop.....Look......and Listen! Take a deep breath. Think about what you do each day. Is there something you shouldn't be doing or can delegate to someone else? Are there things that are continually on the back burner that could really help you grow your business? Maybe you just need an accountability partner or an impartial third party to help you. No matter what you think you can not be and do all things and do all things well. You'll be spread too thin and less gets done right or on time!

Be a good business friend and if you know someone who fits this scenario talk to them about it.
You'll be helping them and yourself as well.

Until next time.....Here's Wishing You A Prosperous Week
